Awkwafina’s rap career, her viral hit single “My Vag”, or her portrayal in “Crazy Rich Asians” are probably what most people know her for. In contrast to that, her Comedy Central show, “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens,” depicts a very new side of the multi-hyphenate rap star, actress, and comedian.
As previously mentioned, Seasons 1 and 2 of the show follow an alter-ego of Awkwafina before she became famous as an entertainer. Awakwafina plays Nora Lin, a twenty-something residing in Queens who desires more out of life but isn’t confident how to get it. BD Wong and Lori Tan Chinn’s grandmother, who is only ever alluded to as “Grandma” in the series, are also part of the show.
The show has won over critics and viewers alike. Melanie McFarland wrote
“Like Awkwafina herself, the show’s charm and warm humor smoothly carry it, and its star channels both of those qualities into every moment, whether she’s being rowdy, dirty, or introspective.”
Awkwafina is Nora from Queens Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens” has yet to be announced, so no premiere date has been set. If and when Comedy Central decides to revise the series for a third installment, we can take a good guess as to when it will premiere based on the second season’s filming timeline.
Before the first installment of “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens” had even begun airing, Comedy Central had already ordered a second season of the show. Season 2 didn’t begin until August 18, 2021, but the continual COVID-19 pandemic likely contributed to the delay. Only five months had passed since the start of production on “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens” Season 2.
To put it another way, it’s safe to assume that if “Awkwifina from Queens” is revived for a second season, the show will debut six months after it begins production.
Awkwafina is Nora from Queens Season 3 cast
A third season of “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens” will almost certainly feature the same cast members who starred in the first two seasons as well. BD Wong plays Nora Lin’s father, Wally, and Lori Tan Chinn plays Nora’s grandma.
Awkwafina plays Nora’s character, Nora Lin, a fictionalized version of herself. ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Bowen Yang plays Nora’s cousin Edmund; Jonathan Park plays Nora’s friend Doug; and Jennifer Esposito plays Wally’s girlfriend, Brenda.
The Plot and Spoilers For Season 3
We’re too early in the game, so it’s difficult to predict what will happen in “Awkwifina is Nora from Queens” Season 3. Since it’s a sitcom dealing with recurring themes and storylines, We can make an educated guess about what season 3 of the series will be like.
So, in Season 2, Nora decides to pursue acting full-time, and Edmund follows her idea and moved to California. With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that season 3 will continue to delve into those narratives further. If the show returns for a third season, it’s possible that viewers will learn more about Wally’s connection with Brenda.
What will happen if Comedy Central decides to cancel or not revive Awkwafina is Nora from Queens? Even though the network doesn’t have a lot of scripted programming, the show has done well in the scores thus far. It’s likely to be renewed, in my opinion. I’ll keep you posted on any new developments. See you tomorrow!
